Auction Sale Price: $1,050,000.00

160 Acres / Custer County, CO

Words can barely describe this beautiful one-of-a-kind property with custom built 2,853 sq. ft. ranch home on 160 acres with amazing views of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Grape Creek meanders through the land creating great habitat for fish and wildlife. The local wildlife includes elk, whitetail deer, mule deer, antelope, black bear, foxes and a wide range of waterfowl. The creek also sub-irrigates a portion of some of the best quality hay ground in the country, with the remainder being irrigated by the water rights included in the sale. There is an artesian water well with a stock tank to handle the watering of any livestock grazing the property after the hay is harvested. This ranch-style home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with the added bonus of a sunroom. Some of the features that make this home so unique are the exposed fir beams, alder wood trim, granite counters, porcelain flooring, custom cherry cabinetry, gourmet kitchen, geothermal heating, and the breathtaking mountain views. You will enjoy watching the mountain sunrises and sunsets from the east and west facing covered patios. Attached to the home is a large heated finished 3 car garage. In addition, the property has a large 60 ft. x 100 ft. steel hay storage building that can store up to 11,000 square bales and a 24 ft. x 60 ft. wood barn to store equipment and/or animals. Taxes are reduced and the privacy of the property is protected by a conservation easement
